Puget Sound documentary to show in Everett

EVERETT — A free screening of an award-winning ocean documentary later this month promises to teach lessons that can help foster a healthy industry and ecosystem in the Puget Sound.

The Snohomish County Marine Resources Advisory Committee plans to host the screening of “Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship” on June 21 at the Everett Performing Arts Center, 2710 Wetmore Ave., Everett.

The screening is scheduled from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., followed by a panel discussion. The city of Everett is co-hosting.

Panelists will include Port of Everett planner Graham Anderson; Kit Rawson, Conservation Science program manager at the Tulalip Tribes; and Andrea Copping, senior program manager for the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

“Ocean Frontiers” takes viewers through a tour of seaports and watersheds throughout the country, from bustling Boston Harbor to the small Oregon fishing community of Port Orford. Other stops include the Mississippi Delta and Iowa cornfields.

The movie shows unlikely allies cooperating to solve problems: industrial shippers and whale biologists, pig farmers and wetland ecologists and others.

“Ocean Frontiers” is an Official Selection of the 2012 Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Nevada City, Calif. It received a jury nomination for Best Science Communication and Official Selection for the 2012 Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival in New Zealand.
